What is KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi] (Kingdom Hearts: Key)?
Presenting the series’ first online PC browser game. Adventure through various Disney worlds as yourself on your web browser You will advance through strategic battles using cards available in-game, and occasionally work together with friends to face off against enemies, introducing a new gameplay sensation never seen in the Kingdom Hearts series before. With collectible items to obtain, this title is looking like something that will be fun to play for a long time. The standard game is free-to-play, with charges for purchasable items.

◆STORY◆
Far, far away, in a fairy-tale realm…
The realm was filled with light.
That light gave birth to many worlds, enveloping them.
The source of the light, Kingdom Hearts, and the key that protected it, the χblade…
As long as they existed, it was believed that the realm would be in eternal light.
However, just as strong light will form a shadow, darkness was born.
The darkness called up fear, unease and craving.
Darkness, hidden deep in hearts, began to spread throughout the realm as chaos.
In order to drive back the spreading darkness, those who wished for light created Keyblades in imitation of the χblade, and embarked on adventures that spanned the realm.
In addition to the familiar Disney World investigation and exhilarating battle of the Kingdom Hearts series, you can enjoy new types of gameplay such as raiding with friends in co-operative boss battles and gathering and enhancing cards!

◆Adopting original avatars for the player character! Explore Disney World settings original to this title!
Before embarking on their journey, players may create their own avatars. Enjoy the various customisations sich as selectable gender, hairdo, skin tone, accessories etc. From original designs to Disney character motifs, many variations are available. Every Disney World that appears in this adventure has been created afresh for this title and fleshes out the world of Disney even more. Also, there are additional action components and gimmicks on the map, which you can enjoy by investigating strategically!

◆Simple action in clicking! Simple battling in a barrage of clicks!
Control movements easily using only the mouse! Field gimmicks too! Move acrobatically by simply clicking on the intended destination. Also, attacks begin automatically by clicking on enemies during a battle. Enjoy battling consecutive enemies and walking on the field to obtain the treasure and materials from the map with simple crisp clicks!

◆Collect cards to turn out techniques! Co-operate with friends for even rarer rewards!
Defeat the enemies in the worlds and obtain cards to get stronger! Your goal is to defeat the many enemies infesting the worlds and collect ‘Lux’. By collecting Battle Cards available in-game, you will become able to turn out many techniques. Also, co-operate with your friends to defeat the raid bosses that appear several times a day! With the ability to execute special moves and abilities depending on the cards you are holding, active players will receive special rewards.

◆Synthesise cards and enhance your Keyblade
You can form decks from the cards you obtain during your adventure to use strategically to give yourself more advantage during battle. Players still getting used to things are able to form decks easily by clicking the ‘entrust’ button. In order to effectively use cards that have become unnecessary, there is of course a card synthesis function for reinforcing, evolving and raising stronger cards! Also, by synthesising the materials available to collect in each world, you can strengthen the abilities of your weapon, the Keyblade!
There are also many other fun factors planned for inclusion, so please look forward to it!
